Simply B Stamps Release Day

Hey y'all!  A few months ago I won a challenge over at Simply B Stamps. As my prize, I received a then-unreleased image to play with.  Not only that, but Betty asked if I would use it in a guest design for the official release!  After jumping up and down and squealing with glee for a bit, I recovered enough to tell her of course I would.  Well, that long-awaited day is here!  I am so excited to introduce you to Miss Rio Burton, the lastest in the new Burton Chibi release!



Isn't she just the cutest little thing?!?  I've already colored about 6 different versions of her, and I have been just DYING to show  you!  For this project, I decided to use her for a post-it note/scratch paper holder.  That way I can keep this creation near me as I craft. (I use a lot of scratch paper to plan my cards as I'm working.)  Miss Rio was colored using Copic Markers.  (I know you're just shocked. I NEVER use those. LOL)  My papers are all from various We R Memory Keepers paper packs.  (Actually, I'm not positive about the purple and brown diamond paper.  I think that's We R Memory Keepers, but I'll check later to make sure.) I stamped bats all over the blue paper to create a little more detail and interest.  The bats, skulls and spider stickers are all from my stash.

Well, thank you so very much for stopping by.  Now you should click on over to the Simply B Stamps blog to check out the amazing creations by the DT.  Their work is so incredible, you won't want to miss it!  Have you seen the rest of this fabulous release so far?  Not yet?  You can also find that at the Simply B Stamps Blog.  They're just the most fabulous little things!

This is perfect for a paper holder. I love the purple bat. The stamped bats are great - one would miss something if the paper was plain blue.
Super cool project I can understand why you like to keep it near you.
